What The Government’s Own Analysts Say About The Social Security “Trust Fund” Might Surprise You

In this year’s budget, Bill Clinton proposed a “Social Security solvency lock-box” to set aside more than $3 trillion in budget surpluses over the next fifteen years to build up Social Security’s reserves before the Baby Boom retires. In effect, the idea of the Clinton plan is to use Social Security’s surpluses to reduce the federal debt over the next fifteen years so that the government can increase its borrowing again in 2015, when the costs of the program begin to exceed its income. Clinton argues that this plan will extend the life of the trust fund beyond 2037, the year it is now expected to be depleted.

Capitol Comment 276 - Annexation in North Carolina: Democracy Denied

Over the past decade, North Carolina has experienced a period of rapid growth. Along with this growth have come demands from cities and towns for larger budgets and new tax revenue. To meet this demand, more and more municipalities are resorting to a controversial procedure known as "involuntary annexation."

Capitol Comment 275 - Clinton Has It Backward: More Telephone Service Would Result From Fewer Taxes, Not New Taxes

Amid a flurry of travel last month, President Clinton – flanked by two commissioners from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – announced new programs to help poor Americans get online. Unfortunately, his latest proposal will only trap the poorest of American consumers into yesterday’s technologies. Clinton announced a $17 million – or about 3 percent – increase to the federal Lifeline1 program, a telephone service subsidy for poor Americans.

Microsoft Remedies Bad for Consumers

Later this afternoon, lawyers from the federal government and 19 states are expected to file their proposed remedies in the Microsoft antitrust case. Throughout the case, Judge Penfield Jackson has sided with the government lawyers and against innovation, so it is likely that their proposal will form the basis of Judge Jackson's remedies in the coming months. Unfortunately, these lawyers falsely believe that splitting Microsoft apart would aid competition and benefit consumers. In reality, the likely outcome of government interference would be expensive and, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ), would take years of legal wrangling.
